New HP Business Service Solutions Help Customers Reduce Operational Costs Of Virtualization
HP has announced significant enhancements to its business service management and automation software. The new HP offerings help minimize the operational costs of virtualization by lowering infrastructure complexity and enabling greater resource efficiency. They include enhancements to HP Server Automation, HP Client Automation, HP Storage Essentials, HP Network Automation, and HP Operations Manager software.
Although virtualization is often adopted to help reduce capital expenditures, it can trigger increased management expenses and can lead to more pronounced organizational silos. The new HP offerings help limit operational costs by bridging all the physical and virtual data center silos through unified management and automation.
Decrease operating expense and integrate infrastructure silos
HP business service offerings help minimize operating expenses by integrating infrastructure silos across the entire data center, spanning servers, applications, networks and storage. The updated HP business service offerings help customers:
- Increase administrator effectiveness with HP Operations Manager for virtualization to monitor the availability and performance of all virtual and physical assets through a common dashboard.
- Reduce the risk of downtime with HP Network Automation support for VMware vSwitch to provide seamless visibility, control, and compliance of virtual and physical network environments.
- Prevent overspending on excess storage without causing applications to underperform with HP Server Automation, the first solution in the industry that allows server administrators to provision the right amount of storage for their applications needs.
- Reduce problem resolution times with HP Storage Essentials Performance Edition by quickly identifying, troubleshooting and reporting performance metric related trends in physical and virtual environments.
To make virtualization cost effective, customers must be vigilant to minimize operating expenses and have seamless management of infrastructure silos," said Erik Frieberg, VP of product marketing, software and solutions, HP. "Our newly enhanced HP business service offerings help customers manage all aspects of the physical and virtual application infrastructure to unlock the true promise of virtualization."
